Excerpts from the Guardian...

“Be prepared,” said Smith, moving to his second suggestion. “It doesn’t matter if you are preparing for an exam, looking for financing for a project or maybe even trying to impress your future mother- or father-in-law, you better be prepared because for some things in life you get a second chance but you never get a second chance to make that first impression.

Casey too, is full of praise for the people who helped make Padinox a success. “You don’t do anything by yourself — it’s all a partnership of all and many people involved, right from the suppliers to the customers, including the people that make it, the people that sell and the people that buy it,” he said before his induction began.

“I am certainly excited and I am humbled and honoured,” said Murphy of his induction into the Business Hall of Fame. “I am with two great gentlemen and their families but as well there are some great names on the wall there. There is a lot of history involved, a lot of people have put great efforts into various aspects of their life so to be put into that situation myself, and my family and my group, I am excited.”
